JOHANNESBURG – Prominent trade unionist and African National Congress (ANC) member Cedric Gina has passed away.

Gina died in a Durban hospital on Monday morning.

He rose through the ranks to become president of metal National Union of Metalworker of South Africa (Numsa).

In 2013, he resigned from Numsa unhappy about the direction it was taking as the union was involved in a bitter battle with Cosatu and later expelled from the federation.

Gina then formed his own union, the Liberated Metalworkers Union of South Africa (Limusa).
